BOMBS AWAY BEER COMPANY:
Bombs Away Beer Company has been hand built from the ground up by the owners since they acquired their building in Albuquerque’s up-and-coming Skyline Heights district. They spent over a year transforming the warehouse into the unique and incomparable brewery it is today. From its handcrafted furniture, fixtures, decor and taproom, to its unconventional brew house, Bombs Away Beer Company is the direct result of the owners’ own hard work, craftsmanship, dedication and passion. Bombs Away Beer Company’s craft beer is made right here at 9801 Acoma Road on their 10BBL brew house. With 16 taps, there is a wide array of beer styles to offer in its comfortable taproom. We look forward to seeing you to try our latest beer offerings.
